Visiting General Synod

The Church of England has issued the following advice about visiting General Synod. It will be particularly relevant for the debate on the women bishops legislation which is timetabled for both the morning and afternoon sessions next Tuesday.

Visiting General Synod

Arrangements have been announced for those wishing to visit general synod and observe its proceedings.

112 tickets will be available each day for the public gallery.

Tickets will be valid for either the morning session (9am-1pm) or afternoon session (2pm-7pm).

Those wishing to view for the whole day will need to obtain tickets for both sessions.

Tickets for the morning session will be available from 8.45 from the Deans Yard entrance to Church House.

Tickets for the afternoon session will be available from 1.45 from the same place.

Tickets will be issued on a first come, first served basis. Those leaving the premises will be asked to return their tickets to allow others to enter.

In addition to tickets for the public gallery there will be a further 40 tickets available for the Abbey Room where a live feed of proceedings will be broadcast.

There will also be an opportunity to follow synod proceedings via twitter where the CofE comms account - amongst others - will be live tweeting proceedings. The hashtag being used for the whole session will be “#synod”

The proceedings will also be broadcast on a live audio feed available from the Church of England website.

The agenda for the synod is available here:

Tuesday's BBC Parliament schedule is here

and doesn't include the Synod. But there will be recorded coverage on Friday.
